Bitdefender released the Top 10 Malefic chart, presenting the most dangerous virus threats for August 2005.

First positions are taken by Zafi.D, Antiman.A and Netsky.P. While Zafi and Netsky are quite known worldwide, Antiman is a pure Romanian viruses that is aimed at deleting the "manele" songs on infected computers. This way, it searches for specific keywords in mp3 file titles and it deletes whatever sounds like manele :)

As BitDefender said, the virus became quite popular due to its complex and well developed spreading techniques, but also because of the fans of this virus that helped it in its distructive missions.

From my knowledge, this would be one of the very few viruses with FANS helping it. Of course, everyone should take care about its side effects, like slowing down the computer and the web navigation speed.

I wonder if the creators of Antiman have any statistics about the number of files deleted by this virus. Any guess?
